Hi, I can help you with this. Do your door locks operate with the remote?

Customer reply replied 12 years ago

The doors do operate with the remote.

Mechanic for Honda: Rob Tech, Honda Master Technician replied 12 years ago
Okay, just want to make sure of everything. Your trunk will not open with the switch in the car either? Will the door locks operate with the door lock switch in the car?

Customer reply replied 12 years ago

No It will not open from the inside button either.

 

Mechanic for Honda: Rob Tech, Honda Master Technician replied 12 years ago
Okay, thank you for your feedback. I've been looking at the electrical schematic. You need to replace your door lock control unit. It is located under the driver side of the dash near the fuse box. It has a gray/white connector. This unit controls the door locks and the trunk lock. Let me know if you need further assistance. If my information has been helpful please hit the accept icon, a deposit does not account as credit for an acceptable answer. Thank you.

Is the lock control unit a Dealer item only?

Yes, unless you bought it from a used auto parts store.

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
